I first met Matthew Meade through our love for and involvement in the Miss America Organization, and Matthew was Mr. Gay Ohio 2017. During his year as Mr. Gay Ohio, he witnessed first-hand and heard countless stories of hate, discrimination, and violence-- all because of a person's sexual orientation or gender identity. Matthew continues to feel a deep pain for his community, and for every community and individual who faces prejudice and hatred- which has fueled his drive to now run for United States Congress.
Views expressed by my guest do not necessarily reflect that of Life Concierge podcast. I wanted to use this episode as an opportunity to showcase someone who is giving every ounce of their being into accomplishing their goals, and doing so with the goal of helping their community in the way they feel will make the biggest impact. I also want my listeners to be interested in the topics that effect all communities in our country and beyond, and even if you don't necessarily agree with our guest, I hope you'll take a second to reflect on why your feelings on certain topics are what they are- is it because of your personal experience? Are you considering how other may be effected by this issue?
I hope that this episode will make you stop and think and perhaps even learn something or think of something in a way you hadn't before.
*We welcome any political candidate to be interviewed on life concierge podcast should they express interest*
Rose Gabler is an author, speaker, and creativity coach.
Growing up in a family of artists, she felt pressured to be artistically expressive but didn't know how to connect her innate creative strengths with her desired business goals.
She began a lifelong journey trying to bridge this gap and faced many challenges in discovering a solid link. After acquiring her master's degree in Business of Arts and Culture, traveling the world for three years, and interviewing hundreds of people in various industries about creativity, she discovered that there were five universal contributing factors that empower our ability to be creative and to utilize it as a skill. She was recently named one of the Top 20 Female Entrepreneurs to Look For in 2021 and her newest book The Creativity Gene achieved best seller status in the first day. Now, she lives in Chicago with her husband and two golden doodles, working with entrepreneurs, artists, and individuals to hone their creative strengths and align them with personal and professional goals to achieve success.
